MY THREE SECONDS
People with psoriasis have visible damages on the skin and these first few seconds may be spent by others on analyzing our physical appearance. Because of that, this visible disease may produce a tremendous burden for people, especially young, affecting our familiar, social and laboral life due to stigma, myths, prejudice and discrimination.
We make impression about people in first few seconds. This phenomenon, called halo effect, influences our overall impression about a person.
For this reason, give me my 3 seconds! We wish to have a chance not to be judged by appearance of the skin. Few extra seconds would change our life if all of us recognize psoriasis as non contagious disease. That would give us a chance to be recognized further than the disease.
We encourage you to be part of the solution signing the Psoriasis´ Manifesto to fight against stigma and discrimination, and sharing our videos and images on your social media channels. We count on you to spread the word!
